Dear Editor, I am writing to say a special thank you to all Homebase and Argos customers and staff in the West Midlands who have helped to keep hearts beating by raising more than £3 million for the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
The two-year partnership between the BHF and Home Retail Group (owner of Argos and Homebase) raised money to place life-saving defibrillators in communities across the UK where they are needed most. They have helped to fund 1,000 defibrillators, 32 of which have been sited in the West Midlands.
Thousands of heart attack sufferers will benefit from rapid response treatment. Everyone associated with the BHF will always be grateful for their support for what was our most successful fund-raising partnership to date.
